VIDEO: Jay Z Violently Attacked By Solange Knowles, His Sister-In-Law

Posted on May 12 2014 - 1:48pm by Editor



A surveillance video has surfaced showing Solange KnowlesBeyonce’s sister violently attacking her brother-in-law Jay Z. Solange is seen in the footage,  kicking and swinging violently at him inside an elevator. 

The incident occurred after the annual star-studded Met Gala Ball. The group attended an after party at the Standard Hotel in NYC. The video was released by TMZ and it clearly shows, Solange, Beyonce, Jay Z and bodyguards enter the elevator. Immediately, Solange tears into snarls and screams directed at her brother-in-law then the brutal attack ensues.


For years it’s been rumored that Solange Knowles suffers from mental health issues. Last year she canceled her European music festival concert Tour, citing mental/physical health issues. She released a statement last year stating:

“I am completely devastated to announce that I will be canceling my international festival dates for the summer. I wish I could put in words how much of a difficult decision this was. Between moving part time to a new city, starting my son in a new school, and writing/ recording my new record, I really had to make the best decision for my mental/physical health. I need to provide some stability for my family.”

A bodyguard stepped in and tried to restrain SolangeBeyonce stood in front of her husband but then moved to the side and seemingly had no reaction to her sister’s behavior, as if it’s status quo. Jay Z didn’t seem stunned either.

The video is quite disturbing. Solange may not be Amanda Bynes but she needs a break. We hope Ms. Knowles gets the help she needs. Our  prayers are with her.

  • Grab the other video of them leaving…walking out like nothing is wrong… Jay left in another car….B n S left in same car…pre arranged. S did not sex J….B would have beat S….Bet Jay made a rude comment, plus S was drunk….but b left S go off….

    • Jay Z and Solange are not sleeping together. Solange suffers from a mental issue. Has for years.

      • Marsbars09

        Oh my, I didn’t know that.
        Hi Doc.

        • Hi Marsie. Hope you had a great day yesterday.

          Poor Solange. She’s not in her right state of mind.

  • Michael

    Sure Salonge wasn’t auditioning to be on the new season of #LHH New York?

  • MAY 5 Solange Knowles age 27, the group attended a soiree at
    the Boom Boom Room at New York’s Standard Hotel, met Gala after party…

    “Solange flipped out over something Jay had said, that she took the wrong way,” a source told Us Weekly. “She took it too hard or too far. Not sure what is was, but she greatly overreacted.”

    At one point Solange smacked Jay Z with her purse as its contents flew
    out spilling all over the floor of the elevator. But that didn’t stop her as she continued attacking him. Solange then walked ahead of the couple as they exited the elevator and
    did not look happy as the bodyguard handed over her purse. Jay Z
    strolled behind his wife, who surprisingly seemed to be smiling.

    A different video shows that as the group approached the same car to
    leave, Solange got in first as Jay Z stepped aside to allow his wife to
    get in. He then proceeded to sign autographs and go to another vehicle, Jay Z left separately.

  • In April 2014, Beyoncé surprisingly showed up while Solange performed “Losing You” at Coachella and they danced onstage

    In 2004, Knowles married Daniel Smith, eventually giving birth to their son Daniel Julez J. Smith Jr., which prompted a move to Idaho. In 2007, Knowles divorced Smith and moved to Los Angeles, California. In August 2013, Knowles announced that she and her son were moving to New Orleans, Louisiana.

    • The 2nd video of them leaving is not sharable. TMZ has it blocked to share.

  • RonnieIsBack

    That ish was kray kray…I couldn’t believe she spit on him too and kicked him…Yall know Jay is not opposed to slaping a bish..he used a lot of restraint..But the convo the next day with camel..oooh wee…Bey’s eyes looked swollen the next day at the game.
    I hope Solange is alright..where is Tina?

    • For years now, I’ve been reading she’s mentally unstable. This video sorts of proves it. It’s sad.

      • RonnieIsBack


  • Dave

    This is the biggest hit she’s ever had.

  • Look at B’s hot pants…..wozer!!

  • ZammyB

    SUKI SUKI NOW!!!! I can NOT wait till they start digging into this HM of a situation! 🙂

    • RonnieIsBack

      I believe there is def more to this story. I hope her son is ok…they move a lot.

  • Marsbars09

    OMG! Something happened that made Solange snap! I wonder if this has happened before. Either way, the Carters’ need to distance themselves from Solange until they feel she can control herself
    Now media is really going to be digging in the very private family’s business.

  • RonnieIsBack

    What is really bad is a photo going around social media with Jay-Z and Rhi Rhi as domestic violence survivors…just wrong …

    • LMFAOOOO!!! I’m glad Jay maintained his cool.

  • Solange Knowles was diagnosed with bi-polar disorder after the birth of her son. Solange Knowles had a break down again in 2013 do to a change in her medication and erratic mood swings.

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Rx! Doc told me earlier that Solange suffered from mental health issues.
      I wonder if Bey insisted that Solange come to the Met Ball with them. It seems like Solange was a “third wheel” that evening.


  • Bonita Gee

    Thank you …….. thank you… yes I broke the story to……… I WILL be keeping you all INFORMED AND UP TO DATE on the story as it unfolds……..
    We will and I REPEAT- WE WILL OR I WILL, get to the bottom of the GOINGS ON and what brought this altercation on that night at the Met Gala Ball….
    You will be in informed…… INFORMED I SAY!!! Heeeeeeeeee Heeeee!!!

    • Marsbars09

      Thanks for covering the story for us Bonita Gee. Solange’s meltdown may be indicative of what going on with Bey and Jay’s marriage.

      • Bonita Gee

        Yeppers… for sure. could be……….. But we’ll find out soon.

  • Bonita Gee

    Oh I must ADD that there is other video footage on that shows them leaving getting into their cars… Beyonce and Solange gets into the same car, Jay Z starts behind Beyonce but turns away and gets into a separate car… Point being, Beyonce still chose to ride with her sister…
    It’s a mystery as to what set this fight off… Awful shame though.

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Bonita! I wonder if something like this has happened before.

      • Bonita Gee

        I’m thinking they’ve probably had altercations before the way he was backing away from her… but I can’t imagine NOTHING like in the elevator, nothing physical like THIS.. Maybe the first time it got physical..
        We’ll find out if it was something he said to her personally, or something it had to do with him and Beyonce and she was sticking up for her sister, because clearly Beyonce wasn’t trying to intervene too much in the fight. And She did leave in a separate car with Solange while Jay Z left alone… IDK but we’ll find out.

  • Raine Woman

    I guess money doesn’t buy you sanity either.

  • SAMRA1116

    Something more is going on—well they made the news again
    Those two B/J are just married. JMO

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Samra! I think something deeper is going on as well. I have a feeling Solange’s violent attack is indicative of the state of Bey and Jay’s marriage.

      • SAMRA1116

        Jay n Beyonce marriage is like the rest a contract—but the cracks, been showing. SMDH
        She had enough of something, she didn’t look like she was on drugs—just very very angry.

  • WestCoastFeed

    This is a sad story. BiPolar rages are awful. And until the doctors find the right medications for her, this sort of thing happens.

  • Bonita Gee

    Okay so because Allaboutthetea won’t post any of my UPDATES I’ll have to update you through the comments section …….. hhheeeeeeee heeeeee.. so here it is.

    Okay so now we hear that Jay Z has officially dropped Solange Knowles from his Roc Nation label.
    If you go on the Roc Nation web site you won’t see her mentioned anywhere.
    Oh well, but as far as we know she was dropped because of the elevator fight, but STILL we don’t know what sparked the fight.

    It’s also said that Solange was jealous of Rihanna signing onto RocNation. Just so happen that Rihanna was at the Met Gala Ball and some are saying so looked so sexy she made Beyonce look frumpy and middle aged. And in a pic it did show Beyonce give Rihanna a VERY stiff hug at the Ball. Hhhhhhhhhmmmm… and the plot thickens…………………… So now I hear on Wendy Williams show that the Rihanna theory I had in my head may be true.

    Solange was upset that Jay Z had planned to dump her and Beyonce to go to Rihanna’s after party that night. Solange didn’t like Jay Z DISRESPECTING her sister like that….. YES………..YES …. this is the rumor… OKAAAAAYYY!! and that’s why Solange went bolistic on him and Beyonce just stood to the side and didn’t intervene. WOW!
